The illegal immigrants are treated like Slaves on some of these Farms. Farmers have also found out that some of these illegal immigrants are destroying there equipment and work a couple weeks and just leave. Watch one dairy farmer go Broke because illegal immigrants destroy his farm.

Child Workers Are Getting Nicotine Poisoning on US Tobacco Farms
https://news.vice.com/article/child-workers-a...
According to the report, nearly three quarters of the child workers on the tobacco farms who were surveyed experienced health effects and symptoms consistent with acute nicotine poisoning, otherwise known as Green Tobacco Sickness (GTS).

Between May and October 2013, HRW interviewed 141 child laborers between seven and 17, who work as many as 50-60 hours a week in the tobacco fields of Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Those interviewed were largely children of Hispanic immigrants, some worked in fields near their homes during the summer months, and others traveled seasonally with their families.
